Crafty Hazelnut's Weekly Challenge # 382 - Add a house

a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Add a house...'

Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!

Here is my card:

I have just been on holiday to Australia to see my family - my three sons all live in Victoria.
Anyway I usually do some crafting with my granddaughters who live near Paynesville.

This time my daughter was also here so we all had a go making cards, with limited resources,
 inspired by the mosaics on the Paynesville waterfront, and also cards that my daughter sent me from Cards from Africa.

Here we are, crafting!!

Basically we just had Kraft card bases, a pack of different coloured card, letter stickers and some washi tape.

My card had a strip of washi across the bottom and then houses made of scraps of card.
I folded an origami star and added the word with the stickers.

I also needed a birthday card for a little girl here so here is my version of a pelican...

I intended adding this to Pixie's Snippets Challenge 324 but have only just realised I didn't add the link - no stamp or die, just snippets!

I hope you will join the

Happy Crafting!


  1. Hi Susan! What a lovely happy post this is! I adore your Christmas card - but the pelican just blew me away - brilliant use of snippets!
